There is a Samsung sticker on the M2. That thing might even block heat dissipation.
I can remove that sticker and put a heat sink on it. But it won't be really needed there. It is placed very clever.
Edit; i might do a complete building thread, yes.
I found a Gelid tower cooler, i had for another project. Can't find the Megahalem. But the Gelid has AM3 mounts. It is a single 12cm fan 4 heatpipe cooler. That might be sufficient for now.
Ah okay thought so.
True the placement is great, on my motherboard it could be an issue as the M.2 SSD is right over the main PCI-E slot so the hot air might heat the M.2 up. But for you it might just be for looks.
But i most likely won't get an M.2 SSD before my next ITX build in a few years, and then cooling the M.2 SSD on the backside of the motherboard would be more important.
